Cognitive and Visual Training Team Up for Athletes
Vision specialists are now combining cognitive therapy with visual training and contact lenses to help athletes process visual input more quickly and accurately with the goal of improving academic performance. A leader in this field is Dr. Stephen Kaluzne of Kaluzne Vision Care in North Carolina. In an article in Optometric Office magazine, Dr. Stephen Kaluzne explains how to combine these disciplines into a program that addresses the athlete’s visual acuity, focus, tracking and eye-teaming, eye-hand and eye-foot coordination, and visual processing including visual-spatial memory, visualization, visual span and other skills athletes need on the field or court to perform their best. Dr. Kaluzne uses BrainWare SAFARI to help patients in his sports vision practice enhance a range of visual processing cognitive skills.
